Student Attempts To Find Gold Here

Law Institute Speakers
Discuss AEC, Industry

"There's gold in them there riv-
banks r"
With this gleeful shout, a finan-
ally hard-pressed student hur-
d along the banks of the Huron
ver yesterday searching for
aces of the precious metal in the
.cient glacial till which covers

LAUNCHING into a long-wind-
ed geological explanation, he re-
lated how his geology 12 lecturer
had revealed that nuggets may be
found in the glacial material.
"Going to college is pretty ex-
pensive," the student remarked,
"so I thought I'd dig up a little
extra money this summer."
He would not reveal his name
for fear that other prospectors
might force him to divulge the
secret place where he is currently
panning gold. However, he added
that some people call him "Yukon
4 An economics major, the
hard-working digger knows ex-
actly where his finds will end
up-buried at Fort Knox.
"Economists say it's a waste of
resources to dig the stuff out of
the ground only to bury it back
at Fort Knox," he commented,
"but as long as the government
pays $35 an ounce for gold, I am
going to consider their charge an
academic argument."
So far the ambitious gold digger
has covered several hundred feet
of gravel deposits along the Hur-

HIS WEIRD assortment of tools
includes a rusty pan for washing
the gravel, a rock breaker and a
huge tub which he keeps "in case
I find any big nuggets."
He said that one day he saw
a glint of gold flashing in the
pan, but it turned out to be a
gold fish. Last week he trapped
several dozen minnows and had
"a fine time fishing."
"I also am accumulating a fab-
ulous rock collection," he remark-
ed, "and there is an amazing var-
iety of shells along here."
Like every other prospector,
"Huron Harry" has jubilantly dis-
covered pieces of shining metal,
only to find that it was "fool's
gold" or pyrite.
Dauntlessly working onward up
the Huron, he expects to find sev-
eral hundred dollars worth of gold
by the summer's end, but failing
this, he hopes to at least get a

INTEREST in the new SL was
at a high pitch among those who
felt the group could cure all the
crowded campus' problems.
But warnings came from sev-
eral sections of campus that a
continuing interest would be
needed if SL were to acquire
the power, without strings, that
it needed to become actual stu-
dent government.
The most publicized committee

in SL's early days was the "Gripes
Committee" (now the influenti-
Campus Action Committee) which
acted as little more than a sound-
ing-board for students' pet peeves.
SL found itself largely concerned
with such matters as putting up
convenient pencil sharpeners and
sponsoring pep rallies.
Controversies over SL's worth-
lessness and fraud in student elec-

lagged and SL had trouble get-

Socil-Psychology Possible
Strike Cure, Says Cartwright

The use of social-psychological
techniques on a large, organized
scale could improve conditions be-
tween management and labor,
thereby leading to the prevention
of strikes such as the current steel
dispute, according to Prof. Dorwin
Cartwright, director of the Re-

However, he said there isn't
much chance of securing govern-
ment approval of such a plan at
the present time because of the
highly political implications of
the strike.

A large 26 person delegation will
represent the University student
body at the Fifth National Stu-
dent Congress held under the aus-
pices of the United States Na-
tional Association at Indiana Uni-
versity August 18-27, 1952.
The Congress theme is: "The
Crisis in Education." Workshops
and conferences will take up top-
ics on student government admin-
istration and organization; selec-
tive service policies affecting stu-
dents; universal military training;
academic freedom; student rights;
federal aid to education; discrim-
ination; student athletic, cultural,
and educational programs; inter-
national student relations and
travel programs.
PARTICULARLY the alleged in-
roads made upon academic free-
dom and student rights, increas-
ing student apathy and the charge
that this generation of college
students is "silent" will be con-
sidered as focal points of the "edu-
cational crisis."
Delegates will be: Howard

FBI Probes
Remove 330
Atom Workers
Three hundred and thirty ato-
mic production and research
workers or appointees were re-
moved or denied Federal employ-
ment, J. Edgar Hoover, director of
the Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion, revealed this week.
These cases came up during the
1951 fiscal year as the direct re-
sult of FBI loyalty inquiries,
Hoover said.
DURING THE year ending June
30, 1951 FBI loyalty investigations
totaled 840,803, with a "signifi-
cant increase" in requests for in-
vestigation of atomic bomb job-
Hoover said that the rise was
attributed to expansions of pre-
sent atomic energy installations
and development of new ones.
Civil Service Commission re-
ports showed, he added, that
1,837 individuals had resigned
during loyalty investigations and
1,503 others had quit before their
cases were "adjudicated."
The FBI chief sounded an omi-
nous note when he asserted that
legal curbs have sped up the un-
derground movement of Commun-
ist party members during 1951.
Estimated p a r t y membership
dropped from 51,785 in the pre-
vious fiscal year to 37,000 in the
period for which he reported.
* * *
FURTHERMORE, he warned
that "thousands of ex-members
who left the party of their own
accord still-feel themselves Com-
munist," though they are not ac-
tual members now.
Hoover said that anti-Com-
munist laws and prosecution of
Red leaders made the party
organization "increasingly se-
curity conscious" and has caus-
ed an increase in its "clandes-
tine activities."
As examples of these activities,
Hoover cited party utilization of
courier services, discouragement
of public meetings, and disguising
of public meetings as other than
Communist, as well as destruction
of party records identifying mem-
The FBI director noted the
effectiveness of the Smith Act
and the Internal Security (Mc-.
Carran) Act in curtailing sub-
versive elements.
Under the provisions of the
Smith Act, which metes out jail
sentences for conspiracies looking
to the overthrow of the govern-
ment by force and violence, eleven
major Communists were convict-
ed in New York. Following the af-
firmance of. the act by the Su-
preme Court, 21 more party lead-
ers were indicted.
From the time the loyalty pro-
gram started Aug. 1, 1947 to the
end of the 1951 fiscal year, 3,674,-
649 loyalty forms had been com-
pleted, 17,050 field investigations
and 19,410 preliminary inquiries
had been made.

new power is used to produce elec-
tricity, Carroll L. Wilson president
of the Climax-Uranium Company,
* * *
tute, Tyrone Gillespie, chief se-
curity officer for the Dow Chemi-
cal Company, urged use of the
lie detector test for the purpose
of eliminating "a lot of the chances
for espionage agents to creep into
atomic research work."
Although he approved the se-
curity effort of the AEC in gen-
eral, Gillespie suggest that more
emphasis be put on personnel
security. "All the major breaches
of secrecy about the atomic pro-
gram have taken place in this
phase," Gillespie said.
The mining and milling indus-
try, according to Wilson, is a
"Guinea Pig" in the efforts of the
AEC to encourage the investment
of private capital in the field.
The initial impact of atomic
energy has been beneficial for the
industry, he added, since a val-
uable material, uranium, is be-
ing recovered from the waste
products of previous mining for
radium and vanadium. A stabil-
ity of operation has also resulted
in the process, since there is a
ready market for all fissionable
material that could be mined and
sold at a fixed price to the AEC
with no sales problems, Wilson in-
* * *
HOWEVER, the second impact
of atomic energy on industry-
the Atomic Energy Act, has pro-
duced problems. As the known re-
serves of uranium pass into the
hands of the government, much of
the new technology of ore proces-
sing goes along with it.
With only one outlet for the
product, Wilson said, private in-
vestors must depend heavily on
the attitudes and policies of the
Atomic Energy Commission.
Wilbur E. Kelly, manager of the
AEC's New York operations office
outlined the duties of the office
in setting the health, safety, se-
curity and accountability stand-
ards for the whole industry.
New facilities at Fernard, Ohio
are presently being constructed
for the refining and processing of
uranium at a cost of $54,000,000
to date, Kelly disclosed.
Schools Lack
Proper Aiim,
Educator Says
Education today lacks realism
from the standpoint of the mo-
dern workaday world, according
to Prof. Ralph C. Wenrich, of the
education school.
"It is a mistake to give all
young people the same kind of in-
struction," he said.
"If we insist on giving all youths
a general or college-preparatory
secondary school education, we
are not giving them an equal op-
portunity to succeed in life."
LESS THAN eight per cent of
Michigan's labor force is engaged
in the professions, he pointed out,
while approximately 65 per cent
is in industrial pursuits, about 20
per cent in business and fewer
than eight per cent in agriculture.
"Educational opportunities in
Michigan high schools are de-
finitely slanted in favor of stu-
dents planning to go to college
to study for a profession," the
educator charged.
"But, unfortunately," he said,
"less than 25 per cent of our
youth are attending high schools
which provide the opportunity to
get an education for work in in-

The professor recommended vo-
cational programs to teach stu-
dents "such values as honesty,
appreciation of beauty, devotion
to truth, respect for excellence and
the pursuit of happiness."

sis from polio.

* * *
ANNOUNCEMENT of the inoc-
ulation, which begins next Wed-
nesday, came as the sprawling big-
gest city in Texas was gripped by
a polio epidemic.
Four new city polio cases were
reported yesterday, two from the
county and two non-resident
cases brought up for treatment.
These raised the total so far
this year to 147 city cases and six
deaths, 94 county cases and four
deaths and 94 non-resident cases
and six deaths.
The National Foundation of In-
fantile Paralysis, which is finan-
cing the gamma globulin research,
regards 20 cases per 100,000 popu-
lation as a polio epidemic. The
City of Houston has an estimated
600,000 population and the county,
which will also be included in the
inoculation, has 200,000.
Dr. William McHammon of the
University of Pittsburgh will dir-
ect the inoculation, second ever
attempted but the first on such a
huge scale. He said the pilot test
last year at Provo, Utah, was tried
on only 5,768 children, not enough
to make a conclusive answer.

Harmonic relations between

Both Canadian and American

in a "pilot study" released jointly
last week in 'Canada and the Unit-

The survey relied upon a straight
numerical count of stories, mak-
ing no adjustments for the fact
that the population of the Unit-
ed States is more than 10 times
that of Canada.
In the American papers, inter-
national participation in events
by Canadians, sports and acci-

ters of the news. U.S. sports items
were most popular with Canadian
